New help in Philadelphia area!!


Recommended Posts

This is a new addition to the headache center at Jefferson in Philly. 

We are excited to announce the launch of our new clinic dedicated to Cluster/ Trigeminal Autonomic Cephalgia (TAC). This clinic is specifically designed for patients like you who suffer from cluster headaches and other TACs, such as SUNCT and Paroxysmal Hemicrania.
Our mission is to improve the lives of patients with Cluster/TAC headaches through research, advocacy, and effective treatments. We will provide comprehensive care to address both your physical and mental well-being.
Since these conditions are not well understood, we're committed to raising awareness about Cluster/TAC headaches and educating the public. The cluster/TAC clinic is dedicated to providing exceptional clinical care with compassion. We're thrilled to have you join us on this journey.
Please reply to this message or call us at 215-955-2243 if you're in cycle. Please reference the Cluster/TAC clinic in your call or message.
Thank you,
Your Care Team at the Jefferson Headache Center

Nice!!!!  This 2023 editorial in the journal of the International Headache Society seems relevant (and is an interesting short read): https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/03331024231212451?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=ihead2024&utm_content=ap_23pupgtmxz&fbclid=IwAR2YiwAM_00DoSP7j_0PP_hP5zkFXsf5GMpQqLp_3842NNAa0Um0h0L45Dk#body-ref-bibr16-03331024231212451   Would it help with awareness if these "headaches" were actually described as what they are, deep brain disorders?

I personally remain adamant about never, ever, referring to a cluster attack as a "headache". The naming of this deep brain disorder is soooo long overdue for a change, and the h word must be strictly prohibited from inclusion in the new name!
